If you need a quick charge, your electric car doesn’t have to go far in Southwest Florida. According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center, there are 15 locations featuring “DC fast” stations in Lee, Collier and Charlotte counties. These are the fastest-of-the-fast charging stations that can get your vehicle 80% changed in under an hour. In Southwest Florida, there are many more public Level 1 and Level 2 stations; however, those will have a significantly slower time to recharge compared to DC fast. 

Before you go, make sure you check the requirements for each station. Some may only serve Teslas, while others like those associated with ChargePoint require you to download an app to handle payment.
